The middleweight WEC Champion, Paulo Filho, talked to Tatame Maganize (www.tatame.com.br) about his friend Anderson Silva – UFC middleweight champion -, who is moving to light heavyweight division to face James Irvin at UFC Fight Night 14, July 19th:
"I think it’s the correct thing to do. He can become a LW too. Get two titles, sounds great. It’s natural. He’s heavier, stronger and will give trouble to American fighters. It’ll be excellent because he is going to make more money as well. He already fought this division in Pride. I don’t see nobody to beat "The Spyder".
Paulo Filho will fight Chael Sonnen on Septermber 10th.
